This year has been a mess in so many ways, but at least we can watch Mulan 2020 without having to leave the comfort of home now. Why? Because the live-action remake became available to all Disney Plus members this December 4, and at no extra cost to users. In other words, you're able to stream Mulan whenever and wherever you want - so long as you've got a Disney Plus subscription, anyway. If you haven't picked up a membership yet, don't worry. It's easy, and we've listed the best deals for you below. No matter which offer you choose, you'll also be able to take advantage of the full Disney Plus library (allowing you to see Pixar's new film Soul when it launches on Christmas Day).

Originally launched as a part of Disney's new Premier Access service a few months ago, the streaming service is finally lifting restrictions and allowing us to watch Mulan without paying anything extra. It's been a long time coming; because you needed to pay between $30 and £20 for Mulan Premier Access depending on your region, it being available for free to all members with a Disney Plus sign-up is a good way to kick off the most wonderful time of the year. And although it's now available on DVD or Blu-Ray, being able to stream Mulan via Disney Plus is still much cheaper overall.

Which is just as well - this version of Mulan offers a grander, more cinematic version than the 1998 animation. As an adaptation of the Ballad of Mulan from Chinese folklore, it follows the eldest daughter of an ailing warrior as she secretly takes his place to fight off invaders.

Ready? Let's get down to business: we've got everything you need to watch Mulan below.
